"60 minutes" is good show a lot of the time. martha: they will take heat for this for some time. >> he is like kryptonite for them. martha: "60 minutes" interview with the president, propaganda. >> melts with obama for some reason. >> also, martha, the other thing is probably the first half the interview is old news. we know how the secretary of state was chosen. we know about the back and forth. this already has been reported on. this is not new information like he was getting new insight how this came about and how they got over their relationship. it really was just a campaign endorsement. martha: yeah. huge questions about how good a secretary of state hillary clinton really was linker when you look at north africa, as you say, talk about the middle east, we could talk about that for quite some time. i want to talk about the political implications why they wanted to do this together. poor joe biden out there, every chance he gets slipping in, i m
for the lead on immigration reform right now, president obama laid down his marker on this issue in las vegas yesterday. take a look. >> we all agree that these men and women should have to earn their way to citizenship. but for comprehensive immigration reform to work, it must be clear from the outset that there is a pathway to citizenship. [applause] martha: you heard the big applause there but the blueprint released by these eight senators would not let illegal i am hi grants immigrants seek citizenship until border security is increased in a comprehensive way. arizona senator jeff flake is in the group and he joins me now. good morning. >> thank for having me on. martha: what is your reaction saying not needing to have border security completely shored up before you have a path to citizenship? >> no you have to have a pathway it citizenship is important to the president, the border protection especially important to us in arizona. we've got to have it. martha: marco rubio agrees with you. he doesn't want to get into a bidding war on this. this group of bipartisan senators agreed on this p
as pattern. it fit as pattern with not only the obama administration and mrs. clinton. she started her tenure going to china refusing to raise human rights issues but saying issues like climate change were too important so she couldn't raise human rights. this is norm with iran. refusing to raise any issue seriously with the government beyond the nuclear weapons program. martha: i wao point out the video people are seeing to the right of you is ev prison which is a notorious prison. the conditions we heard from the pastor's wife, up until now they were able to speak to him on the phone. his children were able to speak with him on the phone. his family in iran was able to visit with him once in a while. he is in a much more isolated part of the prison and that communication will be cut off completely. how would you as a senior state department advisor how would you advise the administration to try to deal with this subject? >> well the more publicity can be brought to this, the more pressure can be applied, the better. frankly dealing with dissidents, i would call this man a dissident now, aro
, it is a matter of look, we're all warriors, and nobody gets left behind here. martha: the sensibility issue here, i want to put this quote to mary katherine, there is sensibility issue here. let's look at this quote from president obama. it really struck me when i saw these words. every american can be proud our military will grow stronger with our mothers, wives, sisters, and daughters playing a great he will role in protecting the country we love. it put an image in mind, our mothers, our daughters, our sisters? it conjures up a lot of things. and i wonder when they're out there and in these combat positions, whether, you know, men feel this protective instinct to some certain extent that might change the dynamic out there. i don't know if that is the case. mary katherine you take that on and then juan. >> i do think it is not something we can entirely discount. it is powerful cultural norm to protect. not necessarily all cultural and sometimes can be biological and hardwired. that is something to worry about unit cohesiveness and how that works. the military is very good accommodating new thi
for answers on a number of key issues. bill: a revealing interview you had with congressman royce last evening. martha: when i remembered back president obama was picking secretary of state the first time around he was interested in the job. he was interested in the presidency as well nine years ago. this has to be a big day for him. he's been a senator for a longtime. this is a pretty big promotion. >> reporter: sure, and, you know, president obama said when he nominated senator kerry, and i think very accurately that senator kerry was essentially bread for this condition. his nats was a foreign service officer. he longed for this job for a longtime, and he didn't really make it secret that he really wanted to be secretary of state. and you see his wife next to him, theresa hines kerry. they have also signaled that this is a want, and he wanted to be chairman of the senate foreign relations committee because of his cant to b want to be involved in foreign affairs. this fits his personality, it's what he wants and it's expected that as long as he doesn't trip over himself in this hearing, and
